Not sure what to say?

I am so sad! I just found out today about Bernie’s passing. We were neighbors for 26 years, and he watched my children grow up. He was very kind and caring. I am so saddened by this.

Bernie is my. Soul brother I am Brett of Seattle. It has been 40 years plus of friendship. We had plans to see each other and rejoice go eat a stromboli and see what he does at the. Little Tully church.....i told him I will pay for a flight and have him stay with me for a couple weeks in Seattle but he does not like to leave Philly. So I said I will come to you soon . the Covid has delayed that I said Bernie I have to get to you before one of us dies and we laughed ...well my friends no one...

Fr. Bernie was and always be to me an inspiration and mentor. He loved Jesus with all his heart and can see him falling at his saviors feet. I'll see him soon.

My wife Suzanne and I lost a friend and a man of God when Father Bernie passed away. We were blessed to know him. May he rest in peace and be with the Lord.
